Mostly i lurk on thsi list, this this is a topic i feel strongly about.

Let me give you an example, would you employ someone to write code for a
real time fly by wire system who had no experience of doing it ? NO!

So why employ a security officer who has no idea how to hack. If you dont
know how to do it, you wont know how others do it and you wont know how to
stop it.

you need to have "played the game" to know where to look, and how to read
between the lines and have contacts in the underground groups.

Yes i am speaking from experience, i am a free lanse security consultant,
and i have played the other side of the fence while at uni, and i dont
trust any security specialist who hasnt done the same.

just my 2p
